GIS in Telecom Market Future Growth Statistic, Trends Analysis and Challenges

Posted by Devanshu Shrivastava on November 24th, 2020

Geographic information system solutions for the telecom sector can be deployed on the premises, as well as the cloud. Currently, on-premises is the more-popular deployment type, as it allows for more control over the data and its security. In the coming years though, an increasing number of telecommunications companies are expected to migrate to the cloud, as it makes data accessible from any internet-connected device, any time.

Moreover, cloud mandates no IT component installation, thereby reducing operational costs for users. With time, not only is the usage of geographical information systems increasing among telecom firms, but these solutions themselves are undergoing technological advancements.

Low operational costs are key for SMEs to expand their network and compete with the established organizations and still make a profit. In the past, North America was the largest GIS in telecom market, as the major telecom companies here are strongly focusing on widening the area served by them.

Seeing the increasing usage of AI and internet of things (IoT), GIS is being equipped with sensors and other connected components, so that telecom companies can gather the data they require. Moreover, miniaturized systems are gaining popularity, as they are cheap, offer more geospatial data collection flexibility, and allow for the collection of navigation and mapping information in real time.

Because of the cost-effectiveness of miniaturized and cloud-based solutions, small and medium enterprises (SME) in the telecom sector have started rapidly adopting geographic information systems. The high cost of these systems in the past meant that majorly large enterprises could afford them, but with the proliferation of mid-sized telecom firms, solution vendors have started offering cost-effective variants.
